What is an investment fund?

Simply put, an investment fund is a financial product that pools money from investors that a fund manager then uses to buy and sell assets such as stocks or bonds. In return, investors receive shares of the fund, providing exposure to the assets in the fund’s portfolio.

Funds can invest within a theme, such as emerging markets, or, for example, the fund can focus on a specific geographical region. A combination of different investment categories is also possible.

Why invest in investment funds?

There are many advantages of investing in investment funds. Through one single product, you gain exposure to many assets. So, if some of the assets in the fund are not performing well, others may be performing well, which helps to spread risk.

As a private investor, it can be challenging to enter certain markets and sectors. Certain investment funds may provide you with access to more markets that you would not usually be able to reach.

Another feature that is relatively unique to investment funds is that you benefit from the knowledge and expertise of the fund manager. Instead of constantly researching and choosing many individual investments yourself, skilled professionals do the work for you. However, before deciding on an investment fund, you should do your research to make sure it is compatible with your investment plan.

Risk of investing in investment funds

Investing in investment funds can be beneficial, but it is not without risk. It is important to be aware of all the types of risk that may arise, which can also vary from one fund to another. We advise you to only invest in financial products that match your knowledge and experience.

Costs of investing in investment funds

Since investment funds are typically actively managed, it comes with a cost. These costs are included in the price of the investment fund. Most of them charge between 0.5%-2.0% on an annual basis. It is wise to check this before investing, as ongoing charges can impact returns on investment. The exact costs are stated in the KIID or KID and the Prospectus.

In addition to the intrinsic costs, we charge a low transaction cost for buying and selling and a service fee. For details, please visit our fees page.
